The Mapmaker is a film about a series of assumptions after the fact - it is told in still images linked to a prose narration. The film explores a hostile environment and makes some presumptions of the thought processes of the woman as she proceeds to her self termination. Forensic, cold, painful and ultimately voyeuristic. "If she were still walking I wouldn't turn my head".

I felt the same way about the still images until watching it. The images change frequently...much of it seems more like stopmotion animations than a 'series of stills.' Very creative. The audio is generally nice, but I feel like more detailed sound work (sounds that illustrate every moment & not just single sounds, but many layers of separate sounds, different voices for different characters, etc) and music that changed a lot from scene to scene could've made it better. However, this film is certainly worth watching and I also recommend it.

When I read this was a series of still images, I wasn't sure how the 26min runtime would play out. I was very pleased and surprised! The narration is amazing, as is the writing. I definitely recommend others to give this a chance; it's beautiful and gives a nice social commentary. Of course, this is just my opinion. Thanks for making this and sharing it!
